NOAA Report: World Labor Capacity Dropping Because of Increased Temperatures

pigrabbitbear writes with a story about some interesting possible effects of Global Warming. From the article: “It’s a good thing that robots are stealing our jobs, because in about thirty-five years, nobody in their right mind is going to want to do them. Scientists from NOAA just published a report … that details how a warming climate impacts the way we work, and the results are pretty clear — we do less of it. NOAA discovered that over the last 60 years, the hotter, wetter climate has decreased human labor capacity by 10%. And it projects that by 2050, that number will double.”
